Katsushika Hokusai (1760 - 1849) was a Japanese artist who is famous for his printmaking and woodblock printing. His most renowned piece of work comes from his woodblock print series 'Thirty-Six Views Of Mount Fuji', which includes the internationally iconic print 'The Great Wave Off Kanagawa'. The print depicts an enormous wave threatening boats off the coast of the town of Kanagawa (Yokohama) with Mount Fuji in the background. The 'Hokusai In The Footsteps Of The Master' exhibition takes place at the Ara Pacis in Rome until the 14th January 2018. Through approximately 200 pieces of work, the exhibition recounts and compares the creations of the Ukiyo-e Master with that of some of the artists who have followed in his footsteps, such as Hokuba, Hokkei, Hokumei and Keisai Eisen. The exhibition consists of five sections that will cover the most fashionable and most sought after topics from the market of the time:

  • MEISHŌ: not to be missed

  • Fashionable beauties

  • Fortune and good wishes

  • Capturing the essence of nature

  • Manga and manuals for learning
